A winter walking holiday with a difference

Cape Verde is one of the most amazing destinations you could choose for a winter holiday. Their location in the Atlantic around 570km off the west coast of Africa means the islands enjoy a cool, dry climate for much of the year. From December to June, the average temperature at sea level is a pleasant 21 degrees Celsius, and rain is very infrequent, making Cape Verde the perfect choice for a dry, sunny winter break.

The islands are amazingly diverse in terms of their landscapes. Each island was created by shifting tectonic plates and volcanic activity. The location exposes them to high winds, the sea and the occasional rain, all of which combine to shape the landscape.

The diversity of the islands is truly astonishing. Those in the east are much flatter and closer to sea level, whereas the western ones are more rugged with cliffs that can rise hundreds of metres. The low lying nature of the eastern islands means that desert landscapes are very common and there are many amazing beaches to enjoy. The higher elevation in the west creates green valleys and fantastic routes for walking and hiking. The islands tend to be at their greenest between September and January, which is another reason to visit in the winter months.
